Does anyone know of a method to recreate an ACT2007 main databse from a remote database - our main database has an error,seemingly from its creation, and thus any backups have the same error - all methods of repairing it have failed - ACTdiag, upgrading it to ACT 2009 (this is what highlighted the error). It still functions fine in 2007, but wont allow any export or repair functions.
If i can recreate a database (ADF) from the remote database i will keep all of the additional notes and other data, and then can resetup the main server pc with 2009.

Ok, i have looked further and can create a new database and export all the data from the remote database into the new one, athough it has hung whern trying to complete this?
If i move this to the main PC, will this open and function as a main databse, and i can then upgrade it and then re-setup the RDB's from fresh

It was only when i started doing it realised it exprted as a database file, i was under the impression it exported as a backupf file, so i jumped the gun a bit
